Wednesday, February 22, 2017
DENVER – State Court Administrator Gerald (Jerry) Marroney today announced his retirement from the Colorado Judicial Branch effective June 30, 2017. The Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice and Associate Justices will begin the search for Marroney’s replacement in the coming weeks.
“I would like to thank Jerry for his many years of dedicated service to the courts, probation and Colorado both as a District Court Judge and as the State Court Administrator,” Chief Justice Nancy Rice said. “Jerry’s contributions to the Branch are too numerous to count. I, and the rest of the Court, wish him well in his retirement. He will be missed.”
Marroney was named State Court Administrator in 2000. Prior to his appointment as State Court Administrator, he served as a District Court Judge in the 10th Judicial District (Pueblo County) for 10 years. In his last year on the District Court bench, Marroney was named Colorado Judicial Officer of the Year for developing an electronic version of the Judges’ Bench Book, which is still in use today. He has been a key member of several Supreme Court committees and has worked to ensure that Colorado is on the leading edge with respect to technology in the courts.
"It has been a great honor to serve as the State Court Administrator and a District Court Judge over the past 27 years,” Marroney said. “I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and on the river fly fishing.”
Before joining the Colorado Judicial Branch, Marroney practiced law in Pueblo for 13 years. He also served as the Pueblo County Attorney from 1981 to 1990. He is a graduate of the Oklahoma City University Law School, Southern Colorado State College, and Pueblo East High School.
The State Court Administrator supervises the central office that prepares the Branch budget; manages fiscal operations and purchasing; and oversees personnel and payroll, as well as computer operations, planning and analysis, internal fiscal and management audits and training for the Judicial Branch. The office also assigns visiting and senior judges as needed.
